I decided we needed to get out and see something here in Albuquerque. I chose the Petroglyph Monument as I’d heard the parking fee was only $1 on weekdays and there is no admission charge. I thought it would be an interesting site. Yes, it was hot. But we only needed to be out for a bit. I don’t ever want to push the family to do more than necessary. So we donned hats, sunglasses and lathered on the sunscreen.
The thing is you have to climb over rocks and up a hill. It’s not really that bad. But for Fiona who is scared of heights, it was not the fun she’d expected. Though she was unhappy most of the way, she did trudge on. But it’s not a place she’ll want to go back to. :)
It was cool to look out over Albuquerque and see way over there on the other side the mountains. It’s in those foothills that we’re staying. It was at least 10 degrees hotter at the Petroglyph site than where we’re staying.
Next time we look at Petroglyphs maybe we’ll find some at Fiona’s eye level.
